Aims of the Society
To encourage the growing of healthy produce and beautiful gardens by sustainable and environmentally kind gardening methods. To provide a focus for local gardeners and growers to meet those sharing their interest in gardening with nature, both for social activities and to discuss gardening and related issues.
Chichester Organic Gardening Society was formed in 1992 as a local group of both the Henry Doubleday Research Association and the Soil Association.
